Lattice Hearts

I hope my card is fit for a Queen because the new QFTD on SCS is Nancy Littrell. To honor her, I chose this card of hers to case. I just don't need any more Christmas cards so today I thought I would do a Valentine card. Nancy had made a card for the CAS141 challenge on SCS using a sketch from PH in VA so I guess I'm casing both of them.
My card is also for the Free for All on SCS. The challenge is 'All Girlie'. Pink colors and hearts are surely girlie.

My card is one of those CAS easy peasy cards. I had this heart punch that I bought last year and never used. I punched a pink heart and a white heart and placed one in an uneven fashion over the other. I thought it gave it a pretty look. I stamped my sentiment and that is all there was to finish it.

I'm entering the challenge #78 at Wee Memories

Twas the Night

It's time for another Tuesday Throwdown challenge and the theme is Celebrate the Season. I'm using an image from Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and I just love. It reminds me of Christmas Eve when I was little and expecting Santa to come down the chimney. The image is called Twas the Night Before Christmas.
I used Flower Soft Polar White for the snow, negatives from punches for the snowflakes (Martha Stewart Aspen Snowflakes) and holly (MS holly edge punch), and the embossing folder is Basic Grey Sizzix Textured Impressions-Christmas and Thin Ice (2 pk. set).  I colored with Copics and the paper is PTI white cardstock and Stampin'Up! Cherry Cobbler. I also used SU Cherry Cobbler ribbon.
